    Guest blogging is dead

    Matt Cutts nailed the coffin of guest blogging in this post. No one knows if past guest blogging will be penalized. It sure looks as if future guest blogging will be penalized.

    It depends upon which site you choose to guest blog. If they are using lot guest post on there site then it is better to stay away from such sites.

    Choose sites that have very low post submitted by guests.

    I dont think its dead, just need to be smarter and submit quality articles.

    I have a site that accepts paid for guest blogs and I am able to keep the rate high, which avoids the spam and gets quality articles. The last one I published was shared on reddit and received over 7,000 hits. The key is to go for quality sites and publish articles that real people are actually interested in, if you do that and they get shared by real people you will be fine.

    If you are just creating spam/low quality articles and sharing it by bots then Google will find it much more easily.

    No, guest blogging is not dead. Low quality links are dead. Here's the proof:

    hahahaha I only can laugh about this.

    Guestblogging backlinks from blogs with high linkpops are the secret of top-ranking.

    Matt cutts dont want this cause this really works for seo.. and of course... they try to scare the people hahahahhaa

    abut beware if you only submitting articles with 1 link to your site... the penguin filter will catch you :P

    Many people misinterpreted the Matt Cutt’s statement. All he intends to say that don’t use guest blogging only for links. Use high quality guest blogging site and not those sites that accept even crap. Try to use only one link that too in author profile only.

    It's not dead. You just shouldn't do it on large scale. Also don't submit to low quality sites. Here's the video explaining the current situation with guest blogging https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHCN_HeBHvI

    I believe she meant that you should not only post to your site. You should add links to other trustable websites as well. Looks more natural.

    Guest blogging with thin content with purpose of link exchange are dead, but guest blogging with good and quality content can never be dead. Sometimes Matt used to say something, but it is not completely true. For example, last year he said that there won't be any page rank update in 2013, but later it was updated. So it's not advisable to listen to him all the time and also not advisable to ignore him all the time

    Guest blogging is not dead but only if you do it wisely. Publish blog posts on high reputed blogs and make sure that the link and the anchor tag should stay is the same topic as the article is. It means link, anchor tag, and content in article or post should be closely related. Guest blogging is dead for those who do not keep these things in mind.

    I'll believe it when I see it to be honest. I think guest blogging is good to get a new audience into ones site and to showcase a different feel to ones site as well. I can understand if someone uses nothing but guest blog articles, but I think a guest post every week or month is a good thing and can help a site grow pretty decently. I can only see it being penalized if anyone were to have a guest blogger post every day or a few times a week. It's best to keep the guest blogger for a few times a month or so.

    I laugh too! Some people also say directory links are dead. But how about DMOZ link and Yahoo directory link? Aren't they powerful? However, if you spam to 6000 directories, then YES, directory links are dead!

    That means it's better to also link to some authority resources in your niche. This will make your article look more natural and more trustworthy.

    Guest blogging may be dead in some regards, but in all due respect, it is still a great way to get some exposure. It may not be the greatest these days for SEO and IM needs, but it does help get more eyes on the product and in fact helps generate extra traffic. Now, it may not help you rank higher or achieve every goal, but it does give the audience something different. And sometimes different is good.
